This little work is a plea for better instruction in sexual matters, especially in the case of women and children. The author touches on many controversial points—Malthusian practices, divorce, fashion, vegetarianism, the use of alcohol and tobacco, etc., some of them in a hardly orthodox, not to say iconoclastic, fashion, with which it can scarcely be, and clearly is not, expected that all right-thinking people must necessarily be in accord. But a spirit of reverent cleanness and a fairness to differing opinion permeates the book, and its tone is that of an attempt rather to make people think these matters out for themselves and find their own solution, so long as they do think of them, rather than to insist on the acceptance of the particular solutions of the problems as they appear to the author.
